The Raindrop Technique uses a sequence of nine highly immune-enhancing essential oils. They are dropped like rain from a height of about 6 inches onto the spine and then lightly massaged in using various hand-to-body techniques. This stimulates energy impulses and disperses the oils along the nervous system throughout the entire body.
Essential oils applied to the spinal column are absorbed through the nerves that feed the entire body. Wonderfully soothing, nurturing and relaxing, the Raindrop Technique can work its benefits in the body for days, weeks or months. With essential oils applied via the Raindrop Technique, the body can be brought into balance and the energy centers (chakras) cleared and re-aligned. Sessions last 45 – 60 minutes, but the oils continue working in the body for a minimum of a week following the treatment.
Some of the Oils used in Raindrop Technique:
Thyme – Thyme contains thymol, which has been studied for its effect on balancing the healthy flora of the mouth. It may be beneficial in helping to overcome fatigue and exhaustion. This essential oil can easily penetrate the body, and may also supply energy during times of stress and physical weakness.
Oregano – Works similarly to thyme but is more aggressive and may help stimulate the immune system, balance metabolism and strengthen the vital centers of the body.
Wintergreen – Contains the same active ingredient (methyl salicylate) as birch and is beneficial for massage associated with bone, muscle, and joint discomfort. Elevates and increases awareness on sensory system.
Cypress – One of the oils most used to support the health of the circulatory system.
Peppermint – One of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs for soothing digestion. Peppermint has been found to improve mental accuracy, and sooth the respiratory system. Jean Valnet M.D., studied peppermint’s effect on the liver and respiratory systems. Other scientists have also researched peppermint’s role in affecting impaired taste and smell when inhaled. Dr. William N. Dember of the University of Cincinnati studied peppermint’s ability to directly affect the brain’s satiety center, which triggers a sense of fullness after meals.
Basil – Can be relaxing to muscles, including smooth muscles (those not subject to our voluntary control, such as the heart and digestive system). Beneficial for mental fatigue, basil may help stimulate and sharpen the sense of smell.
Marjoram – Used for calming the respiratory system and assists in relaxing the muscles. It also assists in calming the nerves.
